This is a great place to pause and catch your breath whilst enjoying the beautiful buildings surrounding the square. Children will enjoy spotting the unicorns on top of the council building.

This is normally a quiet oasis and nice area. On this visit there were a couple of untidy areas with rubbish and tents, it was not clear what was going on.
